Lost In Sunshine
I’m not going to surface from Sunshine until the film is released.
I’ve now seen Sunshine three times – the first time with Brian, Phil and Damien, all of whom worked on the film, the second time with a group of film journalists, the final time with, well, just normal people who knew nothing more about the film than anyone else… This last time was the most remarkable viewing. The first time I was thinking things like ‘Oh! That’s when Damien and I were under the set!’ or ‘Oooo that scene’s changed loads!’. The second time I was purely worried about the reaction of everyone else in the screening room. The final time I was able to just watch it… and my mind was blown out of my head.
In a conversation about the film with someone from IMDB who has seen the film, we were talking about the ending and s/he said that it’s “indeed one of the most beautiful scenes in contemporary science fiction, in my opinion.”… The other night, it made me cry… it wasn’t trying to make me cry at all, but it did… One shot in particular speaks a million words… which we all desperately need to hear these days.
It’s an absolute privilege to be associated, no matter how insignificantly, with the film…. and I hope you all take the time to have a look at the site, big up the film in whatever way you can and don’t forget me as I disappear into the Sun.
